(2019) From La Mancha in the south of Spain, a Chardonnay that is unoaked, but four months of ageing on the lees has added some creamy richness to the apple and pear fruit, Well-balanced, with good lemony acidity, if simple. No UK retailer at time of review.
(2017) Super deep and glossy in colour, this unusual Spanish Malbec has a soaring aromatic, really expressive of the variety's floral-touched, kirsch like character, a touch of blackberry and light smokiness too. In the mouth the approachable delights continue to unfold, with sweet and ripe black fruit, gentle tannins and a pinch of tart acidity to keep it fresh. It's a charmer rather than a bruiser, and all the better for that.
